Flower Soft Valentine

For today’s project I wanted to show that you can use Flower Soft for more than just flowers!

To begin I made a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” top fold card from grey cardstock. Then I cut 2 pieces of black cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”, one for the inside and one for the outside. Next I cut my patterned paper to 3 ¾” x 5”. Then I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of 2” x 3 ¾” white cardstock. I adhered this to my patterned paper about 1” down from the top with my Tombow Mono Adhesive tape runner. Then I used my 1/8” wide Scor-Tape to adhere the black rick-rack. Next I cut 1 ¼” and 1” hearts using my George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge. I then placed them on my non-stick Bazzill Splat Mat and covered them with Flower Soft Glue. I sprinkled Baby Pink Flower Soft all over the glue and let it dry. Then I adhered the larger heart to my card with Pop Up Dots. For the inside I cut a piece of plain white cardstock to 3 ¾” x 5” and adhered scraps of my patterned paper to the top and bottom. They are about ¾” x 3 ¾”. Then I adhered my pink ribbon with more Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment and added my 1” heart. Finally I layered the second black piece of cardstock under the white and adhered everything to the inside of my card. I’m so happy with the way this card turned out! Sometimes if you just start messing around with supplies you can amaze yourself!
